YOUR CONTRACEPTIVE IS AS INDIVIDUAL AS YOU ARE
We all have different wants and needs when it comes to starting birth control and choosing a contraception. Lifestyle is one of a variety of factors that may determine what contraception method you choose when considering birth control.
A 2008 web survey conducted by Marie Stopes International Research showed that 60% of women who experienced unplanned pregnancy were using contraception*…contraception that’s obviously wasn't working for them!
A busy work and home life, the demands of your family, travel, and enjoying 'life as it is' can all impact on the type of birth control that works best for us. Choosing a contraception method that is relevant to you is a personal choice, and needs to be determined by careful consideration of both an individuals needs and the family’s goals.
There are many different types of hormonal and non-hormonal contraceptives available including the pill, the implant, the contraceptive ring as well as a variety of hormonal and non-hormonal options.
